I’ve written about this topic numerous times but it’s simply because everyone gives me new things to write about regarding this same subject: Facebook posts.
I’m sorry people, but when did “freedom of speech” become everyone’s excuse to be a pain in the ass? I thought once the election ended, so would the political Facebook posts but in reality they’ve actually gotten worse. I’m not about to tell you who I voted for, or whether or not I support the decision, but for real, win like a man – lose like a man. Romney isn’t President…deal with it.
And really, if people were that upset about it – instead of bitching all over Facebook to a ton of people who couldn’t care less, write to your Senator or Representative. Organize a protest, join a campaign in preparation for the 2016 election. You complain about how this country is going to go downhill and things are going to get so much worse – well, sitting at your computer sharing links and writing snarky comments isn’t going to change anything. So, if you really want to make a difference, get up off your ass and do it.
Secondly, what is with all this nonsense:
“Like in 3 seconds to show your support. Keep scrolling down if it doesn’t matter.”
Who the fuck came up with this shit? Seriously, September 11th is one of the greatest tragedies not only in American history, but world history as well. Lives were lost, families destroyed, faith questioned and lives forever changed…this is not the way to pay homage, show respect or convey your feelings regarding what happened that day.
As someone who lost close friends and family in the Twin Towers, I find pictures like these offensive and unnecessary. If you want to show your support for the victims of September 11th in a real way, please make a donation to any one of the following charities.
And to the person who started this phenomenon, I ask you what have you done for your country? What have you done to show respect and convey the fact that you remember the events of that day? Is there a yellow ribbon on your car supporting the troops? Do you have an American flag hanging on your home? In short, what the fuck have you done?
Scrolling past this poor display doesn’t make you unpatriotic or mean you don’t care…it simply means that your patriotism is worth more than a fucking Facebook like.
